Legacy Watermelon is an open-pollinated, heirloom that matures in 85 days. A watermelon that revolutionized the industry! An Allsweet type watermelon with a beautiful dark green striped rind. Attractive, deep red, firm flesh with a very good taste with large dark brown mottled seeds. Legacy Watermelon has an a very tight placenta placement with no splits or cracks in the heart. The bright rind color and the firm flesh holds well, allowing a longer harvest window and shelf life. It has a very uniform oblong shape thus reducing the tapering ends which usually contributes to a high percentage of culls. Averages 22-25 lbs, however,with reduced plant populations it has the ability to exceed 25 lbs if conditions are favorable. Very productive. All the qualities of this melon make it an excellent shipper. Wilt tolerant and some ability to resist sunburn. **PVP
